In August this year nature struck the great state of Texas a terrible blow. Possibly 100,000 homes have been destroyed, many owners without flood insurance. Lives have been lost, and as I write this the death toll continues to climb. But I have worse to report.
The United States of America has suffered a tremendous loss of its own, something from which it may never recover. It has lost the southern state of Mississippi. I would laugh, but it hurts too much.
